Rug Punch

Here's a picture (OK, yes it's sideways....I can't figure out why just yet but my techie daughter will straighten it out for me) of my latest obsession.....rug punch. It's sort of a cross between punch needle and rug hooking. The needle is like a punch needle where you push it all the way in and you get a perfect size loop every time. It's unlike rug hooking where you have to be very careful about getting your loops all the same size. But, it does look like rug hooking since you use hand dyed wool yarn. It has that old, primitive look that I like. We'll be having a class on it this fall. Check out our new fall class schedule on our web site at

Little Women's Club

These are some of the quilts we made this year in Jo Morton's Little Women's Club. (Except the one that was stolen from me!)

We really had a blast making these little quilts so you should think about joining us for Club 7 & maybe 8 this fall. We now have some of these kitted and will have the last 2 next week.

This last one (looks a little strange because I took the picture while it is hanging up) is a sample from the upcoming Club 7. These are little 1" strips! It's so much fun, so don't let the size intimidate you. Classes will start in September. Watch your e-mail for complete details.

Quilts on the fence

We always get a lot of compliments during Shop Hop when we display the quilts on the fence. We really enjoy showing off our work and it really makes a statement!
We have even attracted some new quilters and buyers with this display. And, some people have commented that they have a hard time telling if we're open (thanks Dublin for your strict signage) so this has helped. Double click on the pictures to see them larger. Enjoy the show.
